Aaron Rodgers taking on Drew Brees would guarantee a shootout under normal circumstances. But in an NFL season stranger than most because of the impact of Covid-19, Week 3's meeting between two of the game's greatest quarterbacks on Sunday Night Football is likely to be determined by other players.
Josh Allen is ready to take the leap. The Bills shoot-out victory over the Miami Dolphins last Sunday saw Allen throw for 417 yards, 4 touchdowns and 0 interceptions with a yards per attempt (Y/A) of 11.91 and a completion percentage (cmp%) of 68.57. Furthermore, Allen has become the first Bills quarterback to throw for 300+ yards in back to back games since Drew Bledsoe in 2002.
The Philadelphia Eagles closed out a 2019 season with mixed feelings. However, they had a sense of direction and promises for improvement.
There's a lot to love about the matchup between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. Choosing a winner at CenturyLink Field is a tricky business, but there are three things each team needs to get right in Week 2.
It's all about the quarterbacks...
Joe Burrow represents a new dawn for Bengals fans everywhere. The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner was selected first overall by the Bengals back in April.

Seven months, and a global pandemic later, the 49ers on the eve of commencing their quest for their sixth Lombardi. However, with an injury-plagued training camp, combined with a ruthless NFC West, the 49ers would do well to take nothing for granted in 2020.
The Arizona Cardinals have extended star wide receiver Deandre Hopkins to a two-year contract worth $54.5 million and $42.75 million guaranteed.
Star cornerback Jalen Ramsey has signed a five-year $105 million extension with the Los Angeles Rams.
The 2020 NFL season is less than a week away and whilst every team has aspirations of getting to the Super Bowl, only two of them will achieve that dream. Here are four teams that have to be in ‘win now’ mode.
That will be the common consensus surrounding the Washington Football Team. A new Head Coach with complete control over personnel decisions should signal a change of direction and an usher in an overhaul of the organisational culture that has clouded the reputation of the much-maligned franchise from D.C.
This prediction truly is a worst case scenario, but it would allow the Giants a shot at a premier defender such as Micah Parsons or Gregory Rousseau in the 2021 draft class which would continue the rebuild that has begun around Martinez on that side of the ball.
The Covid-19 pandemic has been the bane of life in 2020, with even the simplest of life’s pleasures being unceremoniously upended as the world has scrambled to limit its spread. As one such pleasure, sport has taken a big hit this year.

The Los Angeles Chargers have agreed on a four-year extension with star wide receiver Keenan Allen.
